Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and Microgy, Inc have announced an agreement that allows Microgy to utilize PG&E’s extensive natural gas transmission network to distribute renewable natural gas to markets in California and the West.

Microgy, a subsidiary of Environmental Power Corporation, plans to generate renewable natural gas from dairy and other wastes using its proprietary biogas production technology. Under the terms of the agreement, PG&E will work with Microgy to interconnect these facilities with PG&E’s extensive network of natural gas pipelines.

As these state-of-the-art, gas-generating facilities are constructed at farms in the Central Valley, California will enjoy a reliable supply of renewable, environmentally friendly gas at market-competitive prices. “California is the largest dairy producer and the largest energy consumer in the United States. This interconnection agreement will provide California with access to a new gas supply from our projects,” said Kam Tejwani, CEO, Environmental Power Corporation.

The company’s facilities transform manure and food industry waste into methane-rich biogas that can be used to generate electricity or thermal energy, or refined to pipeline-grade methane for sale as a commodity.
